Thailand re-entry

My family and I are traveling to Thailand at the end of June. We'll be there for 5 days, head to Vietnam for 5 days then back to Thailand for 6 days. Will we need a multiple entry visa or will our 30day tourist visa work both times?

Thanks,

If you are traveling on a Visa Exempt entry, your entry stamp expires when you depart for Vietnam, but you can get a new one when you return. There is no "visa" involved with this program.

If you have a single entry tourist visa, the stay is 60 days maximum, but again your entry stamp expires when you leave the country (ie single entry). Howeveryou can apply for a re-entry permit when you depart for Vietnam.

It always helps to tell people your nationality when asking questions about visas as the answers depend entirely on your citizenship.

Not sure about Australians, you should check it out on the Vietnam forum.

You will need an airline booking to leave Thailand before you’ll be permitted to board.
